Experimental: New alloplastic bone graft material Device: easy-graft (beta-Tricalcium Phosphate)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage Change in Radiographic Measurement of Alveolar Ridge Height [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to 6 months ]
    Radiographic measurement was taken at most-middle portion of the grafted site, perpendicular to the line drawn from reference point (e.g. adjacent tooth/teeth Cement-Enamel Junction (CEJ) or margin of the restoration).
